I Saw You Yesterday - Poem by L.B. Temuco

Love is oblique
a thin lateral image
I pass under its skin

I saw you yesterday
As a child
As a little girl

Your fingers
playing with your dark hair

Your eyes
the cradle of my birth

In this cold crowd
I miss your warm breath on my heart

I loved you then too
I loved you now and then too

How is it possible
that I see you as a little girl

That I have loved you for so long
for such a long time now

I go out to find you
to feel your storm

If it lies at the edge of the earth
the air will not surrender me

Until I take from your hand
that which you wrote for me then

Until with one naked face
we look sideways at the moon
